Citdv' 4 /hte
By DAVE THOMAS
EVERY YEAR for quite a few years now in
the multi-paged budget request which
the University submits to the State Legis-
lature's finance committees, there is a sec-
tion which begins, "The heart of a great
university is its library . ." In the folow-
ing paragraphs, a plea is made for funds
to expand the present General Library
structure so as to more nearly accommodate
the needs of the faculty and student body.
Now no one who has so much as wander-
ed through the over-crowded library stacks
or had to wait a day or two while a book or
document he wants is brought in from stor-
age elsewhere on the campus will deny that
the present facilities are inadequate and
should be expanded.
And this is precisely why it is so sur-
prising to find the University restricting
its library services.
The first cuts came late in the spring se-
.nester with an announcement that the hun-
dreds of students who had previously used
the library for Sunday studying would have
to make other arrangements as the library
would no longer be open on that day until
examination time. Now, not only have hours
been further restricted but circulation ser-
vices have also been slashed.
This presents a rather astounding re-
striction of just about the most vital ser-
vice of the University.-'
Libraryofficials explain that the system
is on a purely trial basis for the summer
and that some of the slashed service will be
restored in the fall. They say that they are
keeping a close watch on attendance and
circulation figures and if any strong protests
are made, adjustments may be forthcoming.
;They point to small evening attendance as
further support for their general case for
curtailment of hours and their specific case
for shutting the circulation desk at 6 p.m.
Only half a thought is needed to realize,
however, that perhaps one reason for the
light evening patronage is the lack of cir-
culation facilities.
The library is for the convenience of the
students and not the other way around. As
long as there is any legitimate demand at
all for library services at certain hours, they
should be supplied, regardless of the cost.
To argue that library hours here are
still more liberal than at other institu-
tions is no defense. The University has
gained its present international reputation
throuh offering bigger and better edu-
cational opportunities than other schools,
and when it ceases to do so, it will lose
both its reputation and its better students.
Student opinion on the problem was care-
fuls ounded out at one of the last Presi-
denfts-conferences held last spring and al-
most unanimously, the student leaders in-
formed the administration that they felt
library hours and teaching services should
be the last items in the University budget
to be cut.
There can, of course, be no doubt that the
library officials are doing their best to
cope with a situation which has been forced
on them. But the point is that the situation
should never have been forced on them at
all.

WASHINGTON-Obviously a settlement in
Korea, if there is one, will have a pro-
found effect on the course of next year's
political battle. Unless the Democratic pro-
fessionals are suffering from mass self-de-
lusion, it will greatly strengthen Harry S.
Truman, making him, if he runs, a really
formidable candidate. A Korean settlement
will correspondingly weaken Sen. Robert A.
Taft (who is rather obviously dismayed at
the turn of events) and Gen. Douglas Mac-
Arthur.
The most intriguing question is the effect
of an end to the fighting in Korea on the
fortunes of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Here it is worth recalling a conversation
between MacArthur and Eisenhower which
took place during the latter's trip to Japan
in May, 1946. Then, as now, Eisenhower
was a leading Presidential possibility. Ques-
tioned by MacArthur on this point, Eisen.-
hower replied that he had no intention of
running.
"That's right, Ike," said MacArthur,
"just keep saying you don't want it, and
you'll get it."
The story is interesting partly because
MacArthur himself, despite disclaimers, has
been acting remarkably like a Presidential
aspirant. It is interesting also because a
Korean settlement is likely to increase the
pressure on Eisenhower to run, as the man
to beat Truman. It is therefore time to ask
whether Eisenhower "wants it," and whether
be can "get it." he answers below are sub-
ject to change, but they are the best now
available.
* * * *
AS FOR THE FIRST POINT, his support-
ers at least state with a convincing
assurance that, under certain conditions,
Eisenhower will definitely accept the Repub-
lican nomination, if it is offered. One con-
dition is that there should be no political
strings attached. A second is that the Re-
Editorials published in The Michigan Daily
are written by members of The Daily stafff
and represent the views of the writers only.
NIGHT EDITOR: EVA SIMON

publican platform should conform with his
views on foreign policy. And a third condi-
tion is that under no circumstances will he
Jeopardize his role as North Atlantic Treaty
Organization commander in order to get
the nomination.
For rather obvious reasons, the story
has been sedulously spread abroad by
Democrats that Eisenhower Is a Democrat
at heart, and is really interested in run-
ning as a Democrat. But the Eisenhower
Republicans claim to have been reassured
categorically on this point; Eisenhower
will not seek or accept the Democratic
nomination.
The question remains whether Eisenhower
can "get it"-whether the nomination of a
man who has never publicly stated his
political affiliation, and who is serving
be organized. There are two main factions
abroad in a wholly non-political post, can
of Eisenhower organizers.
One faction, of course, is led by New.
York's Gov. Thomas E. Dewey. Dewey is
less of a key figure in the Eisenhower move-
ment than is generally supposed. Dewey is
the titular leader of his party, but since his
1948 defeat he has had little nation-wide
influence. Moreover, Dewey is not person-
ally close to Eisenhower, a fact underlined
by his decision to go to Asia, instead of to
Europe, where his candidate is.
The leader of the other, less public Eisen-
hower faction is Pennsylvania's Sen. James
Duff, who is in regular communication with
the general. There is, of course, no love
lost between Dewey and Duff. They are
allies in this matter, but allies by conven-
ience and at arms' length. Duff has already
enlisted former Sen. Harry Darby of Kansas
in the Eisenhower cause. Darby will prob-
ably become the leading public Eisenhower
organizer, lending the desired home-state,
Mid-Western background. But the astute
Duff is and will remain an important figure
behind the scenes.
Heavy financial backing as well as
shrewd political management will cer-
tainly be available for the Eisenhower
movement. But the great obstacle re-
mains-while Eisenhower is in Europe,
Taft's efficient organizers are hard at
work to capture the nomination in ad-
vance.

TRUCE TALKS-Communist and UN liaison officers are meeting
today in the tiny Korean village of Kaesong after a year and 13
days of undeclared war, to draw up plans for a formal armistice con-
ference early this week.
Both sides claimed victory in the conflict-though the present
battle line approximates the front of a year ago. The opposing
armies had chased each other from one end of the peninsula and
back again, both sides sustaining heavy casualties. But neither had
shoved the other out of Korea. Officials said the new boundary
line would probably be the 38th parallel.
The preliminary truce talks had been preceeded during the
week by a host of cautious arrangements. Allied pilots had to keep
away from the road from Pyongyang, which the Communist white-
flagged auto caravan used. The Red-held village of Kaesong was
made a neutral zone. The UN envoys were guaranteed safe conduct.
The brass was polished on a peace train in the Seoul yards.

Granted that the University is faced with
severe budget difficulties for the next year
because of wage increases, inflation and
slashed appropriations, but the fact remains
that, library service should be one of the lasi
services of the University to be cut.
The Administration Building is still filled
to overflowing with office workers who often
appear to spend more of their time in the
coffee room than in their offices and there
are doubtless other administrative corners
that can be cut before overall budget slash-
es are felt in the teaching activities of the
University.
Library restrictions appear to be only the
latest item in a growing tendency here to
sacrifice teaching servic.es to administrative
functions. Next item: the Office of Student
Affairs is considering the creation of a new
administrative post, which will coordinate
fraternity activity and University policy-
at a substantially higher pay level than that
of an assistant professor.

FOR LOCAL ART lovers, the University
Museum currently has several exhibits
on display at Alumni Memorial Hall. In the
North Gallery you may (if you wish) see
a selection of constructivist works by Mo-
holy-Nagy.
Moving through the gallery clockwise,
there are first a number of lithographs from
a series aptly titled "Constructions"-geo-
metric designs in various combinations of
black, grays, white, and even color. The rest
of the exhibit is composed of more construc-
tions in various media, chiefly college and
water color.
Whatever merit lies in being in on the
ground floor must be accorded the artist, for
Moholy-Nagy is unquestionably a pioneer.
But the interest of this collection is almost
exclusively historical. A few of the more
striking arrangements of form and color
will bring a moment of pleasure to the gal-
lery-goer, but for the most part, this phase
of Moholy-Nagy's career does not deserve
much attention.

THE BRAVE BULLS, with Mel Ferrer.
DESPITE THE FACT that most of the
spirit and flavor of Tom Lea's fine novel
have been lost in the screen translation,
what remains is, for the most part, an ef-
fective and satisfying movie.
This is largely because Robert Rossen,
mraker of "AllThe King's Men," is such a
master of realism in 'spectacle that his fail-
ure to transmit what was essentially the
"message" of the novel can be overlooked
in view of his impressive camera sense and
unwavering integrity as a reporter.
Because of this virtual worship of realism,
however, Rossen has sacrificed much of the
essentially romantic motif of the book. He
gives lip service to the symbolic significance
of the "Corrida." but it is never more than
that. He is too busy seeing the fickleness of
the crowd, the dirt on the streets, 'and the
vanity of the matadors to be ever thorough-
ly aware that his thesis is supposed to be a
positive one. The final victory of man over
bull proves that. "Death with grace," the
Syvmbol.means tha+. maon +rancr.n o

CONSIDERABLY MORE rewarding is the
show in the West Gallery: "Six Painters
of the American Northwest." The exhibit
was collected by Dr. Sherman Lee, of the
Seattle Art Museum, and is on loan here un-
til July 22.
Although these particular artists may be
little known to the Midwest, their works
will be familiar enough to arouse memories
of the cubists and surrealists who preceded
them. Fortunately they are not imitative, but
only derivative.
An introductory blurb mentions an ori-
ental influence that pervades the collection,
but it is noticeable only in Morris Graves,
four out of five of whose paintings are exe-
cuted on rice paper imported from the Far
East. His "Consciousness Achieving the Form
of a Crane" is, despite its repellent title, a
beautifully colored and painted picture; the
bird is outlined on a mottled rose back-
ground, with no other forms in the composi-
tion. The brushwork in his other paintings
is interesting, but not as subtle or delicate
as in the first.
James H. Fitzgerald falls back on cub-
ism for his inspiration, and although his
coloration is sometimes vivid, he offers
nothing new. Perhaps he realized this and
tried to impart some sort of significance
to his paintings by appending mystic titles
to them. "Resurgent Sea," the one sur-
realist endeavor among his offerings, is
striking.
Pretty much the same things can be said
of Guy Anderson's paintings ,although the
cubist influence is less strong in his work
and he adds a touch of Van Gogh by model-
ling the sometimes heavily applied pigments.
His coloring is predominantly heavy and
dull, and his "Landscape" and "Sharp Sea"
are so distressingly similar that only a few
would know the difference if their titles were

neth Callahan, who is not only the most
original of the six, but also the most subtle
colorist and most successful composer.
His "Portrait of Wirt" is composed in
much the same manner as Graves' "Crane,"
with the figure transparent and the same
color as the background. "Departure" is a
vivid sea-scape with a red sky; "First Seed
into Last Harvest" combines drawing with
painting, and gains its effect chiefly
through the repetition of endlessly repeat-
ed figures and crucifixes. His "Mountains
in a Mist" is sombre and moody; "The Peo-
ple and the Rocks" is another allegory and,
like "First Seed," is replete with human
figures.
The first two of Mark Tobey's paint-
ings are masses of intricate lines woven into
flat planes; the second, "Forms Follow Man,"
achieves the effect of violent movement
across the allotted space to the uipper right
corner. The other three paintings are all
quite different-a crowded and colorful street
scene, an austere cubist landscape, and a
composition involving a few human figures.
Tobey shows the greatest diversity of inter-
ests and is, after Callahan, the most inter-
esting of the six Northwest painters.
THE BEST OF THE MUSEUM'S current
exhibits is housed in the South Gallery,
where it will continue through July 1.
It is composed of fifty engravings, etchings,
woodcuts, and lithographs from the fabu-
lousdRosenwald Collection, and contains a
representativeselection 'of drawings from
the fifteenth century to the present.
Some of the prints will be familiar to many
observers, especially to enthusiastic connois-
seurs, but most of them are seldom repro-
duced, and will thus be new to you. Many of
the artists are familiar to everyone-Durer,
Holbein, Rembrandt, and Goya, to mention
only a few, but in their media, the more ob-
scure artists are no less interesting.
The truth of the matter is that every
one of the fifty prints is excellent, and be-
yond this there is not much that can be
said. The best thing the reviewer can do
is to advise his readers to go and see for
themselves,
*. * *
IN ADDITION to the featured exhibits,
there are some excellent samples of sculp-
ture and ceramics distributed about the sec-
ond floor of Alumni Memorial Hall, most of
them by students in the school of Architec-
ture and Design. A small jug by Ed Stevens
and plates by Carl Bach and Barbara Try-
tten are three of the more appealing pieces
on the mezzanine. Directly opposite the West
Gallery is a display case containing four
prints from portfolios published by the Bau-
haus in Weimar; they compare favorably
with those in the Rosenwald Collection. Be-

On the central Korean slopes, the troops waited for news of an
armistice. Ground activity was confined to jabbing patrol action.
None of the soldiers wished fame as the last man killed in the Korean

54,302 wounded, 12,244 missing).

OATIS TRIAL-In a Prague prison Wednesday night Associated
Press newsman and Bureau Chief William Oatis waited for the court's
verdict in his trial for spying against the People's - Government of
Czechoslovakia. He knew what it would be. He was found guilty of
"espionage" and sent to prison for five years.
In this country President Truman condemned the trial as a
"travesty of justice," and the State Department sent a note of pro-
test. On Capitol Hill, resolutions were introduced in both Houses ex-
pressing Congress' "profound indignation at the farcical conviction."
Friday night recorded.portions of the trial were broadcast to the
American public. Oatis' confession was heard in a steady, clear voice.'
One comment on the program, by AP newsman Daniel De Luce: "It
sounded natural, as a matter of fact, too natural."

IRAN-In another global trouble spot, the situation was still
tense. The Iranian government rejected the International Court of
Justice's proposal for an interim .agreement with Britain to keep the
vital Iranian oil flowing until the Court makes a final decision. And
Iran went ahead with plans for taking charge of British-owned oilj
property.

PROVOST ADAMS-The resignation of Provost James -P. Adams
became official this week as the top-drawer University administrator
left for an extended vacation after successfully carrying out one of the
most difficult roles in educational history.
As second in command in charge of the entire academic program,f
he carried the tremendous load of building up the faculty and reor-
ganizing the curriculum facilities for the huge post-war expansion3
project.
In six short years, under the most critical circumstances, he gave
the University a much-needed shove down the road of progress. In
campus history, there had never been such a concentrated period of
vigorous and inspired leadership which effected such a large amount
of healthy changes.
During Provost Adams' period of service, he was responsible for
the formation of many important educational units and the appoint-,
ment of top-notch leadership in the departments and colleges.
It would be fruitless here to enumerate the large amount of sub-J
stantial renovations and innovations which he brought into being. It is
more important that recognition be made of those high qualities of
character which gies rise to Provost Adams' success as a leader and asz
a person.
He is motivated by a single-minded devotion to his high concep-e
tion of real educational values. He worked with the tools of integrity,i
ability, intelligence and experience. His fundamental consideration inr
every breath he took was the best interest of the University.n
He possesses a deep-rooted faith in the democratic process ands
the free flow of opinions. Never before had so many faculty members
been consulted on so many problems as by Provost Adams.
His hobby waz his vocation. The huge task of directing one of the
largest educational institutions in the world even pervaded his private
life. He was a tireless and dedicated worker.
But, above all, two rare qualities earned him the whole-heartedE
support of his associates. Provost Adams was a man of matchless in-i
tegrity and great courage.s
As one of the top educational leaders in the country, Provostt
Adams will, we hope, continue to give to free education his uniquet
contribution of forceful action and moral justification.H
